Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Philippians 4:7

_ _ And — The inseparable consequence of thus laying everything before God in “prayer with thanksgiving.”

_ _ peace — the dispeller of “anxious care” (Philippians 4:6).

_ _ of God — coming from God, and resting in God (John 14:27; John 16:33; Colossians 3:15).

_ _ passethsurpasseth, or exceedeth, all man’s notional powers of understanding its full blessedness (1 Corinthians 2:9, 1 Corinthians 2:10; Ephesians 3:20; compare Proverbs 3:17).

_ _ shall keep — rather, “shall guard”; shall keep as a well-garrisoned stronghold (Isaiah 26:1, Isaiah 26:3). The same Greek verb is used in 1 Peter 1:5. There shall be peace secure within, whatever outward troubles may besiege.

_ _ hearts and minds — rather, “hearts (the seat of the thoughts) and thoughts” or purposes.

_ _ through — rather as Greek,in Christ Jesus.” It is in Christ that we are “kept” or “guarded” secure.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Philippians 4:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God — That calm, heavenly repose, that tranquility of spirit, which God only can give. Which surpasseth all understanding — Which none can comprehend, save he that receiveth it. Shall keep — Shall guard, as a garrison does a city. Your hearts — Your affections. Your minds — Your understandings, and all the various workings of them; through the Spirit and power of Christ Jesus, in the knowledge and love of God. Without a guard set on these likewise, the purity and vigour of our affections cannot long be preserved.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Philippians 4:7

And the (g) peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your (h) hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

(g) That great quietness of mind, which God alone gives in Christ.

(h) He divides the mind into the heart, that is, into that part which is the seat of the will and affections, and into the higher part, by which we understand and reason about matters.
